This research analyzes the key strategic issues and market drivers for mobile scanning solutions. Mobile scanning solutions are barcode scanning hardware and software solutions that can either pair wirelessly with or enhance the built-in camera functionality of consumer smart devices such as smartphones and tablets for enterprise-grade scanning applications. The scanning solutions covered for this report include companion scanners, sleds/sleeves, personal shopping solutions, and software platforms that enable the built-in cameras of consumer smart devices for barcode scanning. The report offers market analysis leading applications, drivers, and barriers), in-depth vendor analysis, and opportunities across the following dimensions: technology types, end-user industries, and distribution channels.
This annual research program has been carefully designed for senior decision-makers at barcode technology and solution provider companies, including individuals in the following roles:
Handheld barcode scanners are no longer restricted to the traditional pistol grip form factor or rugged mobile devices; pairing or integrating scanners with consumer devices is increasingly becoming a popular option for less scan-intensive applications. Vendors now offer companion scanners, sleds, and sleeves to support end users' enterprise-grade scanning requirements. Capitalizing on growing smartphone adoption in the enterprise space, new and emerging vendors-including non-traditional participants such as independent software vendors-are challenging AIDC incumbents by bringing data capture technology to a wider audience. Consumer smartphone-based scanning solutions are also gaining consideration in the enterprise space as companies evaluate BYOD policies and alternatives to traditional purpose-built scanners. Today, mobile scanners are primarily deployed in conjunction with traditional data capture solutions; VDC believes that lower tier organizations (especially small businesses), however, are now investing in these products because of their greater accessibility and lower prices, potentially expanding the total available market for barcode scanners. VDC estimates that the current global market size for companion scanners and sled solutions is between $XX and $XX.
The advancement of new form factors and the development of applications such as proof of delivery have led companies to deploy some mobile scanners beyond customer facing applications and extend them into harsh environments, supporting operations in the warehouse and field operations. As retail, logistics, and health care organizations look for new ways to support vital workforce operations and productivity, they consider companion scanners, sleds, and barcode scanning software platforms to be viable solutions to replace or be deployed alongside traditional purpose-built devices. In VDC's recently conducted end-user survey shows, XX% of organizations reported using mobile scanning solutions to support their everyday operations.
VDC believes that mobile scanners represent a high growth opportunity and are primed for success; application development will play a major role in sustaining long-term business development for vendors in the mobile scanning ecosystem, creating apps for enterprise uses cases and extending vendors' products to wider audiences. Distributors with vertical expertise and a strong application developer network will be key components to success, since vendors must differentiate themselves from competitors and establish strong brand images.
